Haiti Bloggers 2012

On October 8-12 Help One Now is bringing an amazing group of bloggers to Haiti to tell the stories of the orphans who are living a hope-filled life, the leaders who are making a difference, and the communities that are being transformed. We pray that you will be able to experience Haiti in a way that you never have before through the words and images that come from this team.

Follow our team on Twitter and watch the #Help1Haiti hashtag for live updates and conversations.
